Xplora is the name of LaSexta’s new documentary channel and will offer classic documentaries, reality TV plus international content from the BBC, National Geographic, History Channel and HBO among others.

The new channel will occupy the frequency of laSexta2 which has gone from being a channel focused on self-produced content to one that broadcasts soap operas and now finally to Xplora.

Xplora promises to avoid repeats and will focus on prime time, as do the generalist broadcasters, although it is also considered a thematic channel by its managers. For example, Monday is the day of reality programmes and Sunday will be devoted to documentary film .
